Tools, Lists, and Feats

There is no Hodge Podge this week. Joyce's 17 year old niece, Anna, passed away. If you have a minute, stop by From This Side of the Pond and share some love with Joyce. And please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.  

Since there is a break in the Hump Day HOPS, I want to share a new-to-me website. It's called DailyFeats and I'm loving it. What a fantastic tool for keeping me accountable for---everything.

There are challenges that you can check out and join. The site then creates you lists and, as you complete a feat (or task) it is moved to the 'done today' section of the lists.

You may be saying, "But I can make my own list." Sure you can!

But who's keeping you accountable for completing your tasks? What's motivating you to get it done?

That's what I really like about DailyFeats! AND, they give you points for completions and these points are redeemable for GIFT CARDS! WHAT?!

I headed over there and joined just yesterday. I've already entered a couple of health and fitness related challenges as well as a pet care challenge and, since I'm working on my mental 'Zen', a challenge that focuses on positivity. 

No, I don't get anything for posting about this site. They don't even know I'm doing it. I'm just sold on it!  And, when I'm sold on something, it's easy to get behind it!

I've been having a few motivation issues lately and this is one tool I'm using to get me out of my funk. My exercising is going well with the 30 Day Shred but I'm getting slack on my running.

The running has turned into walking Tucker. Who stops after about half a mile to be carried. It's hot and humid so I don't blame him. I would rather be carried too.

But the eating has been horrific. Not bad food just too much of good food. Remember, even if you're eating healthy, you must sill count calories if you want to lose weight. 

My hope is that these lists will hold me accountable for completing each health and fitness feat that I need to continue with as well as help get my mental 'Zen' up and running...HA! running--LOL

There are lists for so many different things- not just health and fitness. There are challenges for finances, saving the world, ebay, spring cleaning, politics, quitting smoking- and much more! 

If you check out DailyFeats, let me know. Maybe we can help each other over there! 


  1. Love your new design!!

    So sad about her niece passing away.

    I hope DailyFeats works for you and maybe I should check it out I have been lacking a little something lately too :)

  2. I am going to go check it out, thanks for the heads up. I love lists too.
    Really for earned points you get gift cards, that is pretty cool.
    You are quite a resource person. :)
    Have a great day!

  3. I love lists and will be checking this out. Sounds good. Just wish I could use those rewards here... oh well, I could use the inspiration any way it comes.

  4. Lucy- Thanks! Yeah, I need some help and, so far, this is a good tool. Of course, it's only been one day. LOL

    Kim- Let me know if you join! Maybe we can chat on there and help each other out!

    Betty- Well, you could use them online maybe! Or maybe they have some sort of international thing going on! You just never know!

  5. Thank you for the kind words and thoughts. They are much appreciated.

    I'm trying to catch up a little...I will eventually check out that site. I love lists. I love checking them off especially : ) I'll let you know when I get over there.

  6. Joyce- Y'all have been on my mind all day long! I'm sending up a prayer every time someone in your family pops up. How is everyone holding up? I'm having a big time over at DailyFeats. Hope to 'see' you there soon. Take care! Big hugs!

  7. Debby- It is fun! Yay! We should look for each other!

  8. Hi Pam: We share a lot in common. I'm an empty nester in a way. I still have two who want to stay forever 22 and 25. Glad to have them though.
    I've just stopped by to let you know you have been awarded the Kreativ Blogger Award. Please stop by and pick it up. Congratulations.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
